During warm-ups
Lanes 4 & 10 are designated Starts lanes. Warm-up starts and diving is allowed only in lanes 4 & 10. Warm up starts from the start end of the pool only. Swimmers must exit the lane at the far end and NOT swim back to the start end in these lanes. Designated team warm-up lanes are exclusively for lap swimming. No diving or practice starts shall be permitted in the designated warm-up lanes, neither from the blocks nor from the pool edge.
Warm Ups During the Meet
The last three lanes on the south side of the pool will be available as warm-up lanes for swimmers 11 and up. These lanes are for warm-up and cool-down only, and only when an Acalanes lifeguard is present. Swimmers in these lanes must be swimming laps at all times. No diving or practice starts are allowed in warm-up lanes. Coaches and Team Directors are responsible for explaining safety regulations to all swimmers.
(New in 2018) Violators will be held to a two-strikes policy. The first rule violation will result in a write-up of the swimmer’s name, age and team and will be submitted to the Meet Referee. A second violation will result in expulsion of the swimmer from the Meet.
Rules
The Starter/Deck Referee and head Stroke and Turn Officials will be responsive to our Meet Referee. The Stroke and Turn Officials will be directed to judge all heats equally. Current USA Swimming rules will govern strokes, turns, starts, finishes, etc. for all age groups except for swimmers aged 6 and younger. Swimmers aged 6 and younger will be judged by the “70% rule”, whereby a swimmer must swim 100% correct at least 70% of the time. Where two Stroke & Turn judges are used per lane, the 70% rule allows for one infraction (e.g. flutter kick, one-hand touch, etc.) per Stroke & Turn jurisdiction. A second infraction in either jurisdiction results in disqualification. All swimmers must demonstratethe ability to execute the stroke properly. Protests of DQ’s must be submitted within 30 minutes.

Please be sure that parents are aware the IM is split between days. IM for 11 & older will run on Saturday and IM for 10 & under will run on Sunday.

Ten Lanes

We will be running ten lanes during the meet. There will be 2 heats of finals in the individual events except for IM which is a timed final. Swimmers 11-20 will swim in the
1st heat or consolation heat and swimmers 1 through 10 will swim in the 2nd heat of finals. Both heats will score. Swimmers #21 and 22 will be alternates. If a swimmer in the final heat does not swim (e.g. is not checked-in on-time – see check-in rules), swimmer 11 will move up and swimmer 21 will take that spot.

Relays
We will only be running A relays.

Clerk of the Course Announcements
The event being seated will be announced over the PA system and via Twitter @LSCswim2018. It is the swimmer’s responsibility to ensure on-time check-in.

Check-In

When swimmers’ age and gender group is called to check in, swimmers must present themselves at the appropriate Clerk of Course check-in desk (boys/girls), where they will be seated by a Clerk. Swimmers must remain in their assigned seats until they are led by a Clerk to the pool deck. No parents, siblings, family or friends may accompany swimmers into the Clerk seating area. Only TWO coaches per team are allowed in the Clerk area, and coaches are not allowed to interact with their swimmers after the heat has stood and is waiting to walk onto the pool deck. (Please be sure to relay this rule to all your coaches and junior coaches.)
Preliminaries

Starting at 8:40am, preliminary swimmers for the first event of the day (Saturday: 6 & Under Freestyle; Sunday: 6 & Under Backstroke) should begin checking in at the Clerk of the Course. Each team should utilize shepherds to ensure the on-time check-in of younger swimmers. If a swimmer arrives after his/her heat has been called to stand, the Clerk of the Course may, at his discretion, attempt to insert the swimmer into the race, provided that: 1) the swimmer’s heat has not passed through the “gate” onto the pool deck; and 2) doing so will not create a disruption to the meet. If a swimmer misses an event due to a meet procedure-related issue as determined by the Meet Director, he/she will be placed into a later heat in one of the following methods: scratched slot, first heat of the next event, or solo swim. If a swimmer misses an event due to his/her own fault or the fault of the coaches or parents, there is no further recourse.

Finals
Once a swimmer has been seated, he/she must remain seated or risk being replaced by an Alternate. If a swimmer is missing from the Finals heat, the fastest swimmer in the
consolation heat will be moved up. Open lanes in the Consolation heat will then be filled by Alternates. ONCE A HEAT HAS BEEN ASKED TO STAND, THE SEATED ALTERNATES WILL SWIM, AND THE ORIGINAL SWIMMERS WHO HAVE BEEN REPLACED WILL NOT SWIM. USS rules stipulate that a heat has begun once swimmers are standing, so no changes to the swimmer line-up will be allowed once the heat has stood.
